Two men are in jail after deputies made a traffic stop and one of the suspects allegedly tried to disarm a deputy.
Lonnie Horsley, 53, of Three Prong Road is charged with public intoxication, concealing a deadly weapon, attempting to disarm an officer, assault and tampering with evidence. Stephen Cooley, 37, of Garrison is charged with DUI, no insurance and other traffic offenses.
Deputies said they pulled the two over during a traffic stop along Kentucky 784 about 7:30 p.m. Thursday, according to a news release from the Greenup County Sheriff’s Department.
The release said Deputy Cody Fuller saw Horsley pull out a 25 caliber pistol from underneath the car seat. When he tried to get the pistol away from Horsley, the release said, he allegedly tried to disarm the deputy.
After a physical altercation, Fuller and Trooper Nathan Carter were able to secure the scene.
Cooley entered a guilty plea in front of Judge Brian McCloud Friday morning. Horsley remains in the Greenup County Detention Center on a $50,000 dollar cash only bond.
